PATHETIC WAY OF GETTING OVER ME (Shel Silverstein) Shel Silverstein - 1968 Oh, if you read in the papers that she's been seen A-gettin' in an' out of some millionaire's long custom-made limousine She may fool you with her smiles, but I can see That's just her poor, hopeless, hapless, helpless Pathetic way of gettin' over me So, you were down at Joe's on the night she broke her zipper And some lamebrain drunk champagne out o' her slipper And she danced on the piano, and she screamed, "Hooray, I'm free" That's just her poor, hopeless, hapless, helpless Pathetic way of gettin' over me Oh, she'll do anything she can just to make me jealous Of course, forgettin' me is gonna take her lots o' years So I call her now and then just out of pity When she laughs at me That's just her way of bravely holding back her tears What's that you say? She got married? Oh, the poor little fool To some handsome movie star with a mansion and a swimming pool? And she's looking good? And she's got a kid, or two or three? That's just her poor, hopeless, hapless, helpless Pathetic way of gettin' over me (SPOKEN) Pathetic way of tryin' to get over me But she ain't never gonna make it, honey I mean those guys... those guys you see her with now They're... they're the relatives... maybe business associates I mean... I know this woman And she's sittin' home bitin' her fingernails Let me tell you... she's just readin' magazines. She may look like she's enjoyin' herself That's the way she looks when she's really feelin' bad I know this woman (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2006)
